With just 10 days left in baseball’s regular-season schedule the American League Central and American League East titles are still up for grabs, as the contending clubs look to pay off on the MLB lines and help themselves in the postseason chase this week.
In the AL Central the Tigers have been gaining ground on the White Sox, and they have four games on tap at home against the Royals early this week before heading to Minnesota to face the Twins on the weekend. The White Sox have the Indians in town starting on Monday before getting a visit from another contender, the Rays, over the weekend.
The Tigers are 6-4 on the MLB betting lines over their last 10 games against the Royals, with the OVER/UNDER going 3-7 for totals bettors at Bovada in those contests. The White Sox have won six of their last 10 against the Tribe, with that OVER/UNDER at 7-1-2.
Over in the AL East it’s the Yankees trying to shake off the Orioles for the division title, with New York on a road trip this week that will take them through Minnesota and Toronto. The Orioles will host the Blue Jays for four games early this week – including a doubleheader on Monday – before the Red Sox head to Baltimore for three games on the weekend.
The Yankees and Twins met for four games in New York back in April, splitting those contests with two wins apiece with the OVER/UNDER going 3-1. The Orioles have won six of their last 10 and four of their last five games against the Blue Jays, while totals bettors on the MLB lines at Bovada saw the OVER/UNDER go 5-5 in their last 10 meetings.
On the World Series futures at Bovada heading into Sunday’s action the Yankees were at 13/2 to win the championship, with the Orioles and Tigers at 14/1, and the White Sox at 15/1. The Texas Rangers led the way on those baseball futures at 9/2 to claim the title.
